If Al Smith were performing at a high level, then I could understand the scepticism about Carr taking over.
I have no doubts that Alex will win the job, but my problem is with the fact that we need to have this stupid f**king QB competition every preseason. There's no need for it. If Alex plays bad during the season, fine, bench him. Didn't we already announce him as the starter? "Every player has to look behind his back, etc, etc." That's pure bulls**t, lol. Michael Crabtree could have a horrible camp, and suck in every preseason game, he'd still be our #1 WR. There's no one "behind him, as a competition." Where was the competition when Crabs signs 6 weeks late, and immediately is made a starter? This team has committed a long list of fallacies already this season, and this is just another one to top the list. What a joke.
"But I feel very comfortable in saying Alex Smith is our starting quarterback going forward."
"For me I got the right answer from him that 'you can go out and compete and, yeah, we're going to pay attention to what you do.' After that, I was good. That's all I wanted to hear. Now it's just hard work."
What a bunch of bulls**t.
